Veterans Park is Spring Hill's newest park, opening Summer 2020! 

Veterans Park is situated on the west side of Spring Hill City Lake, located near U.S. 169 and Lone Elm Road. While Veterans Park is under construction, access to the lake is by way of the Sycamore Ridge Golf Course entrance on Club House Drive to lake parking. The lake covers about 40 acres and features a variety of fish, including crappie, blue gill, largemouth bass and channel cat. As part of the Community Fisheries Assistance Program, anglers who hold a state fishing license may fish here without a City permit. 

History


Spring Hill voters approved a sales tax in 2008 to fund the construction of a new aquatic center (completed in 2010) and a new park along the west side of Spring Hill City Lake. City leaders worked to secure access to the park for several years, and now significant work has begun at the park.

While the park has been referred to as the West Lake Park during the early planning stages, the City Council voted in March 2016 to officially name the park "Spring Hill Veterans Park."
Staff noted that the naming of a park is an opportunity to pay tribute to a local individual or group of individuals, and both City staff and the Green Board supported the idea of honoring our local veterans through the new park's name.

The park plan includes trails, fishing piers, a veterans memorial, Melvin Murry Dog Park, a playground, ADA accessible dock, a canoe launch, shelters and more. Staff broke ground on the first phase of the park in early 2018, clearing trees and brush for the site. In early fall 2019, a contract was approved with Mega Construction to begin construction at the park. The park is scheduled to open in June 2020.
